This past weekend the 2011 Essence Music Festival took place down in New Orleans and some of music's most talented acts took to the stage. Kanye West was one of the performers for the event and during his set Yeezy paid some respect to the clasic songs that have influenced his music. New Edition also rocked the house perfoming their smashes "Hit Me Off" and "Jealous Girl" to name a few. Check out N.E.'s performance below:
